This week we've got Krakatau, Soft Walls and Circles!
Krakatau seemingly have their origins before recorded history, emerging from the primordial ooze and lurching towards your turntable like a creature out of Lovecraftian fiction. The guitar-less trio utilize organ, bass and drums to communicate their message crafting dense and heady tunes sprung from the seeds of improvisation and honed to perfection in the studio.
Brighton, UK's Dan Reeves is a busy guy. In addition to running his own label and playing in the band Cold Pumas, he also records under the moniker "Soft Walls". These 10 songs are meditations on the passing of time itself and the pre-concieved notions (both external and internal) of what you can and should be doing with it. Filled with avant-leaning psych drones, dreamy guitar ragas, motorik head-boppers, and pop tunes that shimmer enticingly, these are songs to get lost in; to discover and re-discover. Don't worry - there's plenty of time.
There's a refreshing purity to these recordings, a purity borne out of friendship and love of musical self expression done for its own sake. Featuring members of THE PONYS, RADAR EYES, FOOTBALL, and so many more, this purity of purpose shines through in a prismatic and jaunty guitar/organ driven swirl of pensive post-pop.
